Hello, my name is Angie Rigsby and I teach English, writing and spelling for both 7th and 8th grades. Each week students will be given spelling words, given story prompts and given grammar related assignments. I try to incorporate all three into each week of the school year. The students are given spelling words on Mondays and tested each week on Thursdays. Story writing takes place in their journals on each Friday. In addition, we will also have other activities including persuasive and informative essays and oral presentations including speeches throughout the school year. Please visit the web site regularly for an updated list of spelling words and assignments.
